The Bulls travel to Milton Keynes on Tuesday evening for a testing game against the current second placed team in League 1. StadiumMK is a modern 22000-seater venue, which cost in excess of £50m and reflects the huge investment made in the club both on and off the field. The view and facilities are first class. Admission for adults is £17, concessions £12 and juniors £7. PLEASE NOTE, turnstiles are electronic and cashless so you MUST buy a ticket from one of the ticket offices. Entrance is via Gate 3.
HUISA departs from Legends at 3.00 pm. Fare £14 (members £13). Bookings 08442 761939.
FUNBUS departs Legends at 3.15/3.30. Fare £14/15. Contact Ben 07812 144831.
BY CAR join the M5 at Worcester and travel north joining the M42 at J4a. Continue onto the M40 and then leave at Junction 11 and at the roundabout, take the second exit (sign Brackley A422). Then follow signs for Buckingham/Milton Keynes. At a roundabout on the southern outskirts of Brackley, join the A43 (second exit) towards Towcester. Stay on the A43 until the junction with the A5 where you head south (sign Milton Keynes). The stadium is signposted from the A5 once you pass the junction with the A421. Distance is around 120 miles and you should allow two and a half hours. Parking is plentiful at the Stadium but costs £5 per car. There is street parking available on the Denbigh West Industrial Estate. Sat Nav users should be aware that some systems do not recognise the postcode of MK1 1ST due to its newness.
ALEHOUSES. (from The Ground Guide)
The nearest pub to the ground is the Beacon, which is around a 10-minute walk away, in the nearby Mount Farm area. With the stadium entrance in front of you and Asda over to the right, then the pub is located on an industrial estate behind the stadium. From the back of the stadium cross over the road and go down Dawson Road which is in front of you. At the bottom of Dawson Road turn right into Bond Street and the pub is down on the right, situated next to a small lake. Otherwise there doesn't appear to be much in the way of pubs in the vicinity of the stadium. If you have time on your hands then you can embark on the 20-25 minute walk into Bletchley, where there are a few pubs to be found, but none of which you would 'write home about'. The first that you will come to is probably the Enigma Tavern on Saxon Street. Just follow the signs for Bletchley by Asda and you will reach the pub on your left.
For the Wetherspoons fans (you know who you are), there are two on Midsummer Boulevard in the town centre, one being called the Secklow Hundred. There is, apparently, no truth in the rumour that decent Pubs and Restaurants are a two-day route march from the ground...it's less than half that;)
See you in The North East Corner!
